Default Re: Introduce Yourself

Hey Guys n Gals,

I just joined the forum after reading the site for several months. From what I can see, this is a great place for people with a common interest to share their life experiences, knowledge and general know-how about drumming. This is a great place! So now, on with my introduction.

real name? Erik
age? 26
how long been playing? Since the 5th grade (so, for about 16 years, off and on)
origin of user name? It's an alias I use when I play online computer games and it's the nickname of my favorite poker player.
top 5 drummers? Carmine Appice, Josh Freese, Dennis Chambers, Kenny Aronoff, Scott Phillips, and my uncle.
make of drumkit? CD Percussion.
make of cymbal? Sabian.
where do you practice? My garage.
are you in a band/s? Not at the moment.
covers or originals? A few covers but mostly originals that my friends and I came up with.
what style of music? My own style.
favourite take out food? Mexican.
country? USA.
one really odd fact about yourself? I'm a computer geek.
how did you start drumming? By sneaking into my uncle's music room and playing his kit when he wasn't home with my aunt's permission. Once I started doing that, I was hooked.

Well, that's me. I look forward to getting to know everyone and hopefully being able to offer some advice, tips & tricks, etc.
